That's right, I didn't mean that AHS reflectors can be used with T12 bulbs.
If you have T12s and a narrow strip, you are probably stuck with less-than-
ideal reflectors, if any at all. No reflector can be efficient if there is
no space around the bulbs to redirect the ligth down into the water. This
is a problem common to all (that I know) low price aquarium hoods and strips.
